Leading with Resilience in Challenging Times

With record-high rates of burnout, turnover, and disengagement in healthcare, these challenging times require resiliency more than ever --and it starts with leadership. Learning to incorporate and model key resilience practices such as compassion, engagement, and self-leadership, the resilient leader becomes the key to a culture shift that results in less burnout, greater retention, and restoration of the joy, meaning, and purpose in work. This kind of re-engagement transforms people into better caregivers and better colleagues, which directly translates to improved patient quality surveys and an improved bottom line. The critical resilience skills taught can be immediately applied and taken back to staff to help create and sustain a resilient culture at the unit, department, and organizational level.

Chaos to CALM with Resilience!

Chaos in healthcare today impacts all healthcare workers. While we can’t do anything about the current healthcare crisis, there are teachable skills that can keep you focused, productive, and resilient by being calmer in the face of chaos. Without resilience, people become overwhelmed, make more mistakes, take longer to do things, and become physically and emotionally exhausted -- all expensive in human and financial costs. Chaos to Calm teaches specific, practical skills such as mindfulness, compassion, and self-leadership to handle chaos so that even in the middle of the storm we can remain engaged and resilient.

Self-Leadership in a Pandemic (and Every Other Crisis)

The current crisis in healthcare exposes all of our vulnerabilities, requiring us to slow down, evaluate, and improve our systems professionally and personally. Powerful, effective leadership is needed today more than ever, and the most effective leaders know how to lead themselves first. By practicing self-leadership, they empower their colleagues, teams, and organizations which is critical during times of crisis. Self-leadership is a unique set of skills and behaviors that include trust, transparency, compassion, connection, and vulnerability. Regardless of your title or experience, role modeling self-leadership has ripple effects felt throughout the organization, building teamwork, engagement in vision and mission, and a reconnection to ourselves and our noble profession.

Building Resilience with Compassion

There is a “compassion crisis” in healthcare today with a great paradox. While healthcare is inherently compassionate, the very connection we need to make to be effective caregivers can cause stress and burnout, undermining our ability to be compassionate. The solution to this paradox lies in understanding the critical differences between compassion, empathy, and sympathy. Understanding those differences improves patient outcomes, engages the caregiver, and drives hospital revenues. The critical skill required to build resilience with compassion is the often-overlooked element of self-compassion. Self-compassion has been shown to protect caregivers from compassion fatigue and increase their satisfaction in their caregiving roles. Compassion and self-compassion are teachable skills that produce a remarkable difference in engagement, morale --the antidote to burnout.

Physician Burnout
What You Can Do NOW

According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we lose 300-400 physicians by suicide each year. Physicians struggle to maintain the value and joy that brought them to medicine, resulting in record-high burnout. Today, doctors are called upon to be both technical and clinical superheroes, while burdened with more responsibilities and pressures --taking a toll. Most doctors are hesitant to seek out support and unfortunately the practices that could help them are just starting to be recognized in medical schools. Critical resilience skills such as mindfulness, compassion, and self-leadership are teachable and practical skills that can change the trajectory of burnout, disconnection, excess, and lack of meaning-making a difference now.

Finding Your Voice in Work, Love and Money!

Based on Diane’s newest, soon to be published book, this candid and humorous keynote offers practical and straightforward tools to help you find your voice and speak your truth in every area of your life. Diane uses self-revealing assessments, concrete strategies, and real-life examples to show women how to take care of what is most important: themselves.

Diane will help you rediscover who you are and who you have always been, from the inside out—not by focusing on getting more done, but by demonstrating how to break free of old fears, insecurities, and destructive patterns and belief systems that cause you to lose your voice. In this high energy and interactive program you will learn how to listen to your inside voice, speak your truth out loud, and trust yourself to live it!

Perfect for Women’s, Healthcare, and Wellness Conferences. Empowered attendees leave this program saying, “I know exactly what I need to go home and do” “ I never realized how angry I was until today” “Thank you for being so vulnerable because you allowed me to be vulnerable too”

Reclaiming the Spirit of Nursing

Do you remember when you first decided to become a nurse? For most, the decision was a defining moment—not only for you, but for every hand you have held, every brow you have wiped and every tear you have shared with patients and their families since. Still, short staffing, increased acuities and complexities of care provide daunting challenges for nursing leaders everywhere. Let Diane challenge and inspire you to reclaim your passion and pride for nursing so that you can continue to inspire your staff, your peers and most importantly, yourself!
